How to Delete Google Assistant Audio Recordings from Home Speakers

Here find how you can delete Google Assistant audio recordings from Home and smart speakers. Google Home product suite and some of the audio-controlled features of Android smartphones are supported by Google Assistant. With it you can perform dozens of useful functions, such as controlling your smart home with only the sound of your voice. By speaking commands to your phone or forwarding to your Google Home speaker, you can instruct the virtual assistant to answer questions, play music, play a game, or initiate a variety of other actions.

Each of the given commands are first recorded then sent to Google servers, not just for posterity, but for Artificial Intelligence purposes, as it helps Google understand your speech patterns and make your experience better. Even with these benefits, you may not be aware that Google stores a log of everything you’ve said in the past. Luckily, there is a way to delete these recordings along with the related information. The Google Assistant command and the voice log are tied to your Google Account, not to a single device. In the following tutorial, you can therefore view, listen, and delete all Google Assistant related activities in one place, even if you use the voice service on multiple devices.
